Many professional organizations are beginning to recognize the need to better serve queer and transgender individuals and their families. But how can we actually create truly inclusive spaces for queer and trans people to show up authentically, have their experiences validated, and receive the best quality care possible? Our trainings offer a framework to better understand queer and trans identities, adapt inclusive policies and, most importantly, create a culture that is welcoming and healing for all.
We train because we want queer and transgender patients to be able to speak about their presenting problems, and not have to educate providers about the legitimacy of their identity; we want queer and transgender students to be able to learn and grow in safe and nurturing environments, not struggle under the oppressive weight of stigma, microaggressions, and bullying.
